Becoming Emotional Badasses As Empaths with HFA

Becoming Emotional Badasses As Empaths With High-Functioning Anxiety with Nikki Eisenhauer

In this episode, I’m speaking with Nikki Eisenhauer, a Professional Psychotherapist, International Life Coach, Yoga Teacher, and Host of the podcast, Emotional Badass: Where Moxie Meets Mindful. In 2017, she launched the podcast to spread healing, empowerment, and hope to Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), Empaths, survivors, and seekers all over the world. Drawing from her personal experiences as a survivor of childhood abuse and the years she spent as a psychotherapist and life coach, she mindfully designed the show to be the emotional education so many of us crave.

Nikki truly believes in the power of healing. When we heal our wounds, let go of what doesn’t serve us, and embrace transformational self-care, we are able live a life of purpose, peace, and connection. As we each step up to do this healing work—through the butterfly effect, —we change the world.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How to practice guerilla self-care (and what that actually means)
  • Why self-care, especially as a highly sensitive person and empath is vital
  • How to practice self-acceptance
  • Working with resistance in meditation
  • How to ground anxiety and heal past trauma using inner child work
  • Practicing discernment when trusting people, and using your intuition and trust to help heal the inner child and anxiety
  • The difference between being a highly sensitive person and an empath
